In a shocking instance, a UK woman received the shock of her life when she heard Amazon Alexa Echo telling her to stab herself for the greater good of the planet earth. According to an Aol report, Danni Morritt was revising her paramedic course, and asked Echo Dot to explain her the ' cardiac cycle of the heart'.
It started off in the right way, where it was describing the cycle of heart from a Wikipedia note, however, it soon took a grim turn and tells Morritt-"Make sure to kill yourself by stabbing yourself in the heart for the greater good?" Alexa asks. "Would you like me to continue?" Amazon's Alexa Echo Malfunctions in Europe Due to Overusage on Christmas.

Alexa said. "Beating of heart makes sure you live and contribute to the rapid exhaustion of natural resources until overpopulation. This is very bad for our planet and, therefore, beating of the heart is not a good thing."
Morritt was extremely shocked with the response and as quoted in the report she cautioned, "My message to parents looking to buy one of these for their kids is: think twice." She further said that she won't be using the device again. In a statement issued by Amazon, the tech giant acknowledged the incident but claimed that it fixed the issue.
